Sun, water, games and fun = Garden party

We have had a week with sickness, malaria, babies on drip and a garden party!!! In an earlier blog, I wrote about a girl who was so sick and who refused to eat. We had to put her on drip, she had 10 bottles IV fluid. We prayed a lot for her and we asked people around the world to pray for her. And the miracle took place.... Immaculate is eating and smiling again! That gives reason to celebrate! And our Dutch volunteers organised a garden party! With games, water and fun.
This is a Dutch game "koekhappen" I don't know the English word for it. A little bread roll on a string and you have to eat it without the help of your hands! Here you see a stiff competition between Joshua and Helen!
This is the Balloon race, there are two groups, and your group tries to be the fastest to get all to the other side and back, with the balloon in between you. Here is the the turn of Dinah and Immaculette.

This is again a competition between two groups, carry a cup with water on your head to the other side. And try as a group, to get the most water in the bucket. On this picture has John (left) some difficulties to get the water in the bucket.
This is a picture from Immaculette, carrying a cup of water on her head. This is the same girl who was so very sick, only 5 days ago! We are so thankful and so happy to see her enjoying life again. She still has a long way to go, but we see joy in her eyes again.

And that is what keeps us going, right now we have a little baby of 4 weeks, who is very sick, she is on and off on drip, has fever, diarrhea and vomiting. We are worried about the little girl, but then I look at Immaculette, and I get encouraged, if we do what we can, God will do the rest!
